We admire the Providence of God as we see the way in which He arranges for the Ethiopian to hear the Gospel and be saved. We also see that this represents the breaking down of another barrier as the Gospel reaches a category of person (a eunuch) who was excluded from the assembly of Israel under the Old Testament provisions.

We see:

  • How the Lord brought Philip to the eunuch
  • How the Spirit brought the eunuch to Christ
  • How Philip and the eunuch were then used to bring the Gospel to others

We are encouraged by this account to see the sovereignty of God in salvation and to understand that we have every reason to believe He will use our efforts to bring His people to Himself.
